As for the looms...
I've been asked about the beret pattern. It was originally designed for the Knifty Knitter long (oval) looms that haven't been released yet. But I am in the process of adapting it to the round Knifty Knitter looms. That pattern should be available next week. I'm interested in doing a felted beret....what do you think?
I love this shawl! I taught this class last May and didn't post it to my other blog so I thought I'd add it here.
It was loom knitted using the yellow Knifty Knitter loom and 2 skeins of Bernat Matrix yarn. It's worked using flat panel knitting. You'll knit the shawl sideways starting at one side, increasing pegs/stitches to the bottom "V", then decrease pegs/stitches to work to to the other side. I added loads of fringe to the bottom! But that would be up to you.
Cast on 3 pegs using e-wrap. Turn, e-wrap and knit 3 pegs for 6 rows using flat panel knitting method. (This creates a tie at one side.)
Increase row: Increase 1 peg/stitch by e-wrapping it. Turn, e-wrap and knit off.
No increase row: Turn, wrap, and knit off.
Repeat "Increase row" and "No increase row" until all 41 pegs have been used.
Decrease row: Decrease 1 peg/stitch by lifting last stitch from peg onto loom tool; lift next-to-the-last stitch from peg onto loom tool (two stitches on loom tool); now lift last stitch over next-to-the-last stitch, and let it drop (1 stitch remaining on loom tool). Return next-to-the-last stitch to its peg. This is the same as binding off in flat panel (as for a scarf). Turn, e-wrap and knit off.
No decrease row: Turn, wrap, and knit off.
Repeat "Decrease row" and "No Decrease row" until only 3 pegs left with stitches.
Turn, e-wrap and knit 3 pegs for 6 rows using flat panel knitting method. (This creates a tie for the other side.)
Bind off 3 pegs/stitches using flat panel bind off with chain in between. Weave in tails and add fringe!
